Elizabeth Shue, nice choice:thumbsup: I guess it perfectly illustrates what a 'name actress' is. Someone who hasn't been on our screens too frequently over the last 20 years but who everybody instantly recognizes. I never would have thought of her but I think she will be a great fit. Judging from comments on another forum it sounds like she could be bringing a number of new fans to the show as well as former CSI fans who had quite the show. She seems to be one of those actresses who people think of fondly. Going against the grain I think it's actually a good idea to bring her in during this season and not to wait until next September. Sure, this season has already seen the addition of two new members and which by all accounts has been a resounding success. I say get all the changes out of the way in one fell swoop so that by the time next season comes around the main cast will be well established and most viewers will have come to terms with the changes. Otherwise speculation of not knowing who is joining the cast will just drag on for months and months and months.
